Fellow Seibertron.com board member chuckdawg1999 is at it again, sharing a video review with us, and it's an early look at the inevitable black repaint of an Optimus Prime figure into.. Transformers Generations Legends Nemesis Prime! Complete with Targetmaster Spinister, from the Legends Bumblebee pack, check the video out below.
While these are straight repaints of wave 1 figures Hasbro switches things up by swapping Targetmasters. Nemesis Prime gets a repaint of Blazemaster done up like Spinister complete with spinning rotor blade of doom. I've always been a fan of this mold and really like how it pops in black with teal highlights.
Thanks to the Transformers Columbia Facebook page we have some new official images of figures in the Transformers: Age of Extinction 1 Step Changers line. The figures include: Rollbar, Strafe, Megatron, and Prowl. Take a look at the images mirrored below:
Fellow Seibertron.com user and YouTube reviewer optibotimus was able to acquire an exclusive SDCC 2014 G1 Dinobot set, featuring redecos with added chrome paint Age of Extinction Grimlock, Strafe, Slug and Snarl, and posted a video review of the awesome foursome - and the pop-up display by Matthew Reinhart! Check out the shiny goodness in the clip embedded below.
You may remember the first part of this lengthy, in-depth interview with IDW's Transformers wordsmith James Roberts from a while back. The folks over at Sequart were finally able to post the second part, and you can read it in its entirety here! Take a brief glimpse at some of the great topics discussed, from Chromedome and Rewind's relationship, Megatron's development and the importance of pacing and dialogue, below, too.
WHITTAKER: Knowing you go through that kind of stringent screening of dialogue lends, at least from this reader’s perspective, the characters a certain charming honesty. They seem like real entities rather than just mouthpieces for certain ideas and opinions or to appear simply as catalysts for narrative.
ROBERTS: Thanks! A lot of MTMTE stories are quite high-concept, or if not high-concept then high-density in terms of the plot and the number of things happening at any one time. And because you’re limited to 22 pages and a certain number of panels per page, you only have so much space to convey ideas and information. I try, sometimes successfully, to smuggle exposition into natural-sounding dialog.
I’ve become more confident in how to impart information, and in how good readers are at filling in gaps when you hold stuff back. You can structure a conversation between two characters in such a way that the reader comes in halfway through and discerns the thrust of what’s been said; and then you can dance around a bit and use ‘hard info’ sparingly, but the tone and pace of the conversation, and the order in which certain details are revealed, can lend everything a realistic bounce and ensure that what needs to be established has been established.
Seibertron.com member reluctantyouth dropped by to let us know he acquired the highly anticipated Transformers: Age of Extinction Deluxe Lockdown at a Target in Peoria, IL. The figures also appear to be on sale for $9.96. Happy hunting!
